Portsmouth taxi firm raises fares due to poor road conditions faced by its drivers

Have your say

Hampshire’s motorway drivers have becomed used to having their journeys disrupted by accidents, the weather and roadworks.

But motorists this evening had a more unusual cause for delays after a bush was spotted on the carriageway.

The object has caused a lane to be partially blocked on the westbound route near junction 3 at Nursling.

Traffic information service ROMANSE tweeted: ‘#M27 Westbound - Lane 1 partially BLOCKED between J3/#M271 #Nursling and J2/A36 #Ower due to a bush (yes, a bush) in the carriageway, no delays. @HighwaysSEAST’
